Susan Wearne - update on Health Care Homes and ‘Academia and Bureaucracy – an insiders view
  • Health Care Homes is a Commonwealth government’s major initiative that commits to a systematic approach to chronic disease management in primary care
  • Evidence based, coordinated, multi-disciplinary mode of care that aims to improve efficiencies and promote innovation in primary care services
  • Around 200 HCHs
  • Services for up to 65,000 people with two or more chronic and complex conditions
  • Services will commence from 1 July 2017 and there will be a staged implementation

Susan is a relatively new bureaucrat, joining the department in January 2016 and still considers herself a novice. Susan shared her experiences with a light hearted and entertaining presentation.
